Background
Jawoyn

The Jawoyn Association has never wavered from our elders’ vision when the Nitmiluk land claim was underway:

to bring the Jawoyn people together as one nation, care for country and develop economic independence.

We strive to improve the cultural, social and economic well-being of the Jawoyn people, while always caring for country.

We represent and support the Jawoyn people and country through our human services, land management, cultural and business enterprises.
